There are many rooftop restaurants in Hong Kong. So what sets apart Alto, a contemporary grill house situated on the top floor of V Point Tower in Causeway Bay? To begin with, it’s the stunning interiors designed under the expert guidance of Tom Dixon, an award-winning British designer whose works have been celebrated the world over.
Taking inspiration from Alto’s restaurant grill and sweeping views of mountains, sea and the sky, Tom Dixon blends four classic elements of earth, air, fire and water to create an unique decor. While a monochrome backdrop frames the panoramic view of Victoria Harbour, a canopy of 230 signature gold Mini Melt lights add to the festive feel. The blackened timber table tops, molten metal brass fittings, green marble and terrazzo stone add to the glamour as well. It’s easy to say that this is a place that would see those Instagram likes shoot up!
Moving on to the food, guests are spoilt for choice with a plethora of sumptuous options, from superior USDA Prime and Argentinian grass-fed beef to French-Asian inspired mains including sous-vide chicken breast and sous-vide salmon, an eclectic spread of starters, side dishes and salads, such as yellowfin tuna tartare, grilled halloumi with pickled cauliflower and tomato with smoked almond romesco.
Of course, as dessert lovers can testify, no meal is complete without a decadent desserts, and Alto is equally well stocked in that department, featuring an array of drool-worthy dishes like banana cakes, mixed berry trifle, dark chocolate caramel tart.
With such Instagrammable interiors, delectable dishes and artisanal cocktails, it’s no wonder that Alto is soon becoming such a popular destination for Hongkongers.
